Found on ./ today. Looks quite cool, a programmable platform for 802.11
development, with Linux as its OS. If you wanted to explore having multiple
Munchkin-like devices communicating with one another, this is a low-cost way
to do so.

Here is a summary of the features of the embedded computers that are built
into the M-1 and M-3 . . .

* RAM: 32MB (default), 64MB, or 128MB of SDRAM
* Flash: 8MB (default) or 16MB
* 1 x Davicom DM9102AF (tulip-clone) 10/100 Ethernet on RJ45
* 1 x miniPCI socket (comes filled with a 802.11b NIC and "AP" software)
* miniPCI socket has the pins for V.90 modem and 10/100 Ethernet brought out
to a second RJ45
* 1 x Smart Card (SIM form-factor)
* I2C header
* 3.5 x 3.6 in. (smaller than PC/104 form-factor)

M-3 specs . . .
* Processor: Motorola MPC8245 running 333MHz
* RAM: 1 x SODIMM socket, usable with up to 512MB (off-the-shelf modules)
* Flash: up to 32MB
* 2 x Davicom DM9102AF (tulip-clone) 10/100 Ethernet on RJ45s
* 2 x miniPCI socket
  first slot comes filled with a 802.11b NIC and "AP" software);
* first miniPCI socket has the pins for V.90 modem and 10/100 Ethernet
brought out to a second RJ45
* 1 x full PCI slot (more Ethernet, T1, T3, additional 802.11a/b/g NIC,
etc.)
